  1. Where do I change the fov? Also my dude got his foot stuck in the GAS thread and we were calling for help for hours before someone came and now the right side of his face is all weird and glitchy plus some things are missing from his inventory I think.
  2. Do you mean like rides? Can we hear some examples of ironic cymbals? Last question; is it the way the cymbal is played/programmed, the place it occurs or the way it's mixed that makes it ironic? Took me a long time to get my rides right and not too long after I figured out some programming tricks/swing settings/etc and started getting the mix right I switched daws. So now I usually decide to get rid of the ride.
  3. Hey man, thanks a lot for your webtivism! It’s good to know someone’s got our backs and thanks to your relentless efforts fascism is kept at bay. Some goddamn (excuse my blaspheming) important work you’re doing here, exposing all the other fascists on this board that are trying to seize power. Time well spent, that’s all I can say.
  4. I just read someone on elektronauts refer to a metallica concert as a live dawless jam and it made me laught out loud and clap my hands.
  5. I remember Gerhard Belles saying in an interview that was published around the time Ableton incorporated Cycling '74 that piracy wasn't really a priority for them and he said something along the lines that he himself wasn't too bothered by it.
  6. I could’ve just responded with “messy nest of wires” but here’s some pics. Initially I made a version closer to the one in the article but it felt too cramped and when some issues started arising (probably because of inadequate soldering skills) it was very difficult to troubleshoot. Plus I didn’t like the lightweight plastic enclosure sliding around my desk. This is (hopefully) the inbetween version with dip sockets to try different diodes, or in this case some transistors and the veroboard that I couldn’t be bothered to cut bluetacked to the bottom of the crudely repurposed mixer enclosure. I think I have a dlc file with the wiring/layout on my laptop somewhere, which I would gladly share if it’s of any help.
  7. I'm looking to add a stereo pre-amp to the Mojo Maestro (https://audioxpress.com/article/you-can-diy-build-the-mojo-maestro) I put together a while ago. Preferably based on a TL072 because there's a bunch of those in my stash. The plan is to add some more diodes (finally found some actual, I mean actual, germanium diodes in different flavours), a couple of transistors salvaged from an old obscure hifi amp and a pair of output transformers that I took from a reel to reel that was beyond repair and put it all on a rotary switch so I can select different diode pairs or just go through the transformers. Of course I googled a bunch but get a bit lost every time looking for "tl072 stereo preamp". Any and all tips, insight or banter welcome 🙂
  8. Was supposed to get my first shot yesterday but was forced to reschedule due to an allergy attack that had me involuntarily dispensing snot to my surroundings. Luckily it only amounts to a slight delay but a bit miffed anyway.
  9. Yeah, I think it takes some trail and error to get it right. Used one for a couple of years on a gas stove and it always took some attention to get consistent results. Worth it though.
  10. Leftover (non longer) crispy pork that I'm dipping in a mixture of ketjap manis, shanxi vinegar, szechuan pepper and crushed fennel seeds. Goddamn party in my mouth. Drinking a cool guy.
  11. What/which output transformer did you use for it?
  12. I remember hating the vocal mix of the previous nevermen remix, this is somewhat more palatable. Fucking Mike Patton though. All in all just as boring as the fauxporwave cover art… mehhhh.
  13. Can of Budweiser Banana/apple/avocado/spinach smoothie Sausage salad with spicy mustard tuber and some sliced pickles. delicious and nutritious
  14. Splendid. Have your people meet my people on the former pruisian side of the Three Emperors Corner before sundown. Each item will be individually vacuum sealed and ready for immediate consumption, or further processing, depending on your needs.
  15. That reminds me I should probably do something about the pile of jizz encrusted socks and sweaters that’s been stewing in a corner of my room.
  16. Happy birthday, buddy! Hope you had a good one.
  17. In anticipation of the activation of a new EU import tax regulation per July 1st I ordered some parts from tayda a little over two weeks ago. For the last 2 years it’s taken dhl about 7 days to deliver orders from tayda. This time however it seems to be taking much longer and I’m starting to suspect dhl is purposely holding small shipments so they can collect admin fees on packages delivered after July 1st. Although now that I’ve typed it out I’m realising it would probably also cost them a fair sum to withhold any significant number of packages from delivery for any number of days. It is what it is, guess we’ll never know.
  18. Just ate about 3/4ths of a chocolate mousse cake with a double espresso for breakfast. To offset all the sweetness I consumed half a container of Peking duck style pork with one pancake and some leftover cucumber and spring onion, when I went to put the last of the pork back in the fridge I grabbed a slice of cold pizza with Gorgonzola, spicy sausage and pineapple and a beer. Pizza’s finished, about to crack open the cold guy and smoke a cigarette.
  19. Got sigs turned off so hope this still makes sense. I’m still trying to wrap my head around reach the endless sea, this sample track is like a familiar warm bongo bath. Lovely.
  20. It’s my birthday today and when I noticed I got a text from the corner of my eye I thought it was from one of the many people in my life that could possibly be kind and considerate enough to stay up late to be amongst the very first to congratulate me. It was a phishing text from my bank alerting me to a future withdrawal. Guess I’m now of an age where these phishing cats consider me old enough to possibly fall for their schemes. You’re overlooking the fact that even though you might be the sum of your influences nobody in the entire world has the exact same influences as you do and nobody has or will ever combine these influences or be affected by them in the way you are. FACT.
  21. Probably a short-sighted Dr. Phillesque observation but I noticed that it’s easier for me not to feel awkward and dissatisfied about social interaction when I make the interaction more about the other person instead of what it’s like for me and what I need/want. It always feels counterintuitive to me because I feel like I’m increasing the distance between myself and the other when I sort of disconnect my emotional needs/expectations/whatever and make it less likely to have a more profound or meaningful connection but most of the time it opens up this middle ground where I can actually meet the other and then take it from there. It took me a long time to understand, and I still often have to remind myself/rephrase/internalise what my therapist meant when she tried to convey that it takes a certain amount of narcissism to always feel awkward about interacting with other people. Maybe they feel awkward too and it’s not just about how I feel and then this idea opens up the possibility to turn it around and become a beacon for awkward people and then all of the sudden you feel connected. It’s hit and miss, and ime more difficult with people that I’ve known for a long time because of the tendency to fall back on behavioural patterns, otoh it has greatly improved the relationship with some people I’ve known for decades because the timing was right and they were also examining their own outlook and behaviour. Otoh a lot of people are obviously cunts, and I’m a prime example.
  22. I need help: I’ve been looking for the “Tupperware, more like “Tupper-where-isthefuckinglid” meme for at least 6 weeks. The situation has become very urgent. Don’t wanna shit up the meme thread. Don’t wanna shit up a newthread. Please help. sinceryy (It’s a forum issue) oh! The one featuring Skeletor, not one of the other gazillions of shitty ones that pup up on google.
